Charlton Athletic are currently in a grey area as a potential takeover continues to spark questions from fans.
Current owners East Street Investments (ESI) could be about to lose control of the club as takeover rumours swirl. A recent statement posted by Charlton revealed that the board had been made aware of a ‘change of ownership’.
Would you like to see Huw Jenkins takeover at Charlton?
ESI bought the club in January from Roland Duchatelet but a turbulent relationship could now see Tahnoon Nimer and co usurped from their position at the hilt. Interest from former Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins and a Portuguese business consortium are among the parties taken into consideration for sale.
Charlton director Marian Mihail has answered questions from fans and has stated that, despite the interest shown in the purchase of the club, the identity of the buyer has not been revealed.
A lot of Addicks fans are becoming impatient with the up-and-down news, with many taking to Twitter to express their frustration. One supporter has responded to the Q&A post saying it’s ‘absolutely pointless’ as talks remain vague.
Absolutely pointless. A takeover has been agreed but even people who are running the club don’t know who it is. What is the point?

Another fan has said ‘all roads point to Jenkins’, who recently said he wanted a chance to prove he can ‘prosper’ again in charge of a club (via Wales Online).
All roads point to Jenkins judging by next week he expects sale news.

Again, still none the wiser. His answers become more and more shady as the weeks go on! #cafc
